THE first right hand drive Ford Mustang is proving a big hit in the UK, topping the high-performance sports coupe sales charts after just a few months on sale.

Since Ford UK started taking orders last year, Mustang has topped 4,000 sales to date, with total 2016 registrations at 2,317, so far.

This puts the Mustang comfortably at the top of the table against rivals, the closest being the Jaguar F-Type with 1,446 and outselling the likes of the Mercedes SL, Porsche 911 and Audi TT in the sporting coupe sector.

The current split in sales across models shows that 70 per cent of customers went for the 5.0-litre V8 engine, with the remaining 30 per cent favouring the 2.3-litre EcoBoost.

Total customer orders for the Ford Mustang in Europe now stand at more than 19,500 since the car was launched in the third quarter of 2015.

Since June this year, all Mustang models have been fitted with a new SYNC 3 infotainment system as standard, offering a redesigned eight-inch touchscreen and faster performance, and the ability for drivers to control their connected smartphones, audio, navigation, and climate functions with more conversational voice commands.
